Article "Oh, Billy!"
Article "Oh, Billy!"
This article describes an incident involving the brother of President Jimmy Carter, Billy Carter. The incident, as reported by United Press International, included Carter making a racially offensive comment to a black politician, Carter Gilmore. Gilmore was running for city council in Oakland when he met Carter and asked him if he wondered why they both shared the name "Carter". To this Carter responded by saying "Well, I hate to say it,but we all left a (derogatory term for Negro) in the woodpile someplace." Gilmore commented on the situation by saying that the comment reminded of jokes he used to hear in the South Texas aimed at degrading people. Carter responded to the situation by saying that he was just "kidding". The article ends with what seems to be a joke asking for Billy Carter's resignation as the President's brother.
